Yeah, VCU chose to take the high road and just say LSU will not be on the schedule with no further comment. LSU decided to say that they tried. The issue in scheduling is some flexibility on both sides. To top it all off last year Wade contracted COVID and the game was scrapped. VCU took a JMU game and LSU played Nicholls on a Saturday that VCU had free (I think JMU was before Christmas and LSU played the day after Christmas). VCU could not have been happy about that last year since the game still could have been salvaged. I wonder if that had anything to do with how the dates being scheduled this year were received by both parties. Scheduling has to be a headache with contractual dates set and other teams offering times and days.VCU backed out of the deal due to a small window LSU gave VCU to play the game this year. VCU's schedule did not align with LSU's window to play the game.
